Sound. Words. Meditation.

December 9 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

ReadingMeditationJoin us for a created environment of listening, relaxation, reading and writing. From 4:00 to 6:00pm on Sunday, December 9 at the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor, contemporary classical and ambient music will be played via the soothing sound of LP – some of it not available digitally – to create a contemplative space to unplug and focus on enriching words in books, write down one’s own thoughts, or simply taking in the beautiful view of nature from the surrounding windows

In conjunction with Write On, a selection of books on nature, poetry, and even spiritual matters will be collected on tables in a created lounge area in the Kress Pavillion. Write On will also provide journals for people to write thoughts and ideas that come out of the experience.

While there are many opportunities in Door County to socialize, the aim for this ongoing series of Reading Meditation events is an opportunity for people to have quiet time to think and reflect in a comfortable and thought-provoking environment.
